  1. Adjust the bed and set the nozzle height.
  2. Check the nozzle’s temperature.
  3. Use different building plates to create different effects.
  4. Pay close attention to your printer’s adjustment and maintenance.

How can I make my PLA prints look better?

The technique to polish your prints is simple. Get a soft cotton cloth, and apply a small amount of liquid polish. Then apply to your 3D print surface in small circles until all the polish is rubbed into the surface. Once you’ve finished that, the surface should look reasonably shiny.

How can I make my 3D printer clearer?

X-axis and Y-axis Transparency (FDM) – Overall, the following settings can improve transparency in this technique: Print slower (25–30% of your normal print speed) Print thicker layers by using a larger nozzle. Print at 70–90% of the nozzle diameter to obtain a structure that refracts less light.

Why are my 3D prints bad?

What Causes this 3D Printing Problem? Typically this 3D printing problem is attributable to two parts of the printing process — either something is wrong with your filament supply, or there’s a problem with the hot end/nozzle itself. It could be as simple a case as your filament has run out.

Does slowing down print speed increase quality?

This affects how your printer lays down each layer of the part. While we do love having prints done quick and fast, quality is always affected in some way by the speed of your printer. The general rule of thumb for 3D printing is slower speeds will yield higher quality.
